A person copied me on a long email about how Jesus was really a pacifist. Now there are Christians I know who say that Jesus was not a pacifist, etc, etc. I’m not going to go into that.
However, I sent the man who sent me these comments a very short reply:
I wrote: "This is how you become a loser. A slave."
And this is true. Nietzsche himself had indicated that Christianity is a SLAVE RELIGION. You can see it clearly everywhere including deals that were struck between the Church and the State with things like "… render unto Caesar that which is Caesars…" (Pay Tax).
I’m not too interested in the debate about the mythical Jesus and whether he was this or that. But I do think that there is a LOT in Christianity that TURNS YOU INTO A SLAVE.
Nietzsche indicated that the path forward, the path to the future, to progress, is a path that is rather more like that of the Pagan values that came before Christianity.
Christianity I might add, is also a worship of weakness, of failure, etc. There is a quote from Hitler that Christianity, taken to its logical conclusion is: THE SYSTEMATIC CULTIVATION OF FAILURE.
Look around you. Look at the media and the values pushed out everywhere and you will see an endless worship of FAILURE. The strong bow down to the weak. The strong beg the weak for forgiveness. The strong apologise for success. The weak spit hatred at the strong for their own failures.
The entire setup is totally insane. YET THE ENTIRE WESTERN WORLD WORKS LIKE THIS RIGHT NOW AND HAS DONE FOR DECADES.
And that is where we are now. We’re at that point where we worship weakness, we worship failure, we REINFORCE FAILURE. When the losers lose, we give them more resources so that they can lose again. This is total madness and insanity.
You can see it everywhere including here in Africa. We are constantly rushing to lift up the failed, to stop those who fail. The failures fail and we then go and try to keep them alive. You have the productive lifting up those who are incessant failures.
You spend your life sympathizing with incompetence and losers.
The whole matter is ridiculous.
Hitler is dead right. We live in a world now where WE CULTIVATE SYSTEMATIC FAILURE AND WE GROVEL AT THE FEET OF THE FAILURES AND LOSERS AND THE WEAK.
WW2 was the time when the Weak defeated the Strong. Now we are living in the nightmare that came from that.
